The Washington Post reported on the recent opinion issued by the D.C. Court of Appeals, in which in the concurring opinion Judge Catharine Easterly wrote about the dangers of overstating claims that “forensic experts can match a bullet or shell casing found at a crime scene to a specific weapon.” Judge Easterly wrote that these claims are misleading. Despite the fact that many scientists now agree that this type of testimony is false, there are only laws in Massachusetts that bar this kind of testimony, thus leading forensic experts to often overstate the evidence in front of them.
